Originally published anonymously and attributed to MESLIER, Jean (1664-1729). Parts by Voltaire (1694-1778). Translated from the French Original by Miss Anna KNOOP. Arranged for publication in its present form and manner with new Title page and Preface by Dr. L. W. de LAURENCE
Atheistic, anti-Deist, anti-Theology tract; the 1910 edition published by de Laurence being expressed as part of a series of works which "...inform you most fully regarding the origin of Christianity and contain valuable extracts and notes from such eminent Christian historians as Dean Milman, Westcott, Davidson and Dr. Philip Schaff. These works also prove according to history, that many books in the Bible are anonymous and forgery, and, that 'the so-called doctrines of Christianity are the height of absurdity.'." Timing of the edition's publication noteworthy, so far as it coincided within a few years with the publication of the Scofield Reference Bible. Cui bono?
